C & S Manufacturing Corporation (Basset Products) was founded in 1962 by John D. Collins who worked for many years as a Heating Contractor. After obtaining a patent on his unique “Basset Bracket” the company was dedicated to the manufacturing and selling of time and labor-saving products, initially for the HVAC industry. As the business grew and new labor savings ideas were developed, the company expanded into the plumbing industry with similar labor-saving and code-required products. The Basset Products Line of C & S Manufacturing is well known in these industries and is now stocked by over 2,500 Plumbing and HVAC wholesalers throughout the country.
C & S Manufacturing Corporation is a family-owned and managed business and our customers are our extension of that family.
